    I'm in the middle if organizing my closet, and I have lots of cables I don't want to throw away. Some are coaxial cables, a couple HDMI cables of different sizes, some CAT cables for my computers, USB cables, etc. How do you organize your spare crap?

    zip ties and zip lock bags.

    Also, if you have more than 4 or 5 spare USB cables, throw the excess away/recycle. Nearly every new electronic device you buy will have its own USB. Ditto for anything more than a couple spare coax.

    That's a good idea. I can put each kind of cable in a separate bag and put them into a drawer. Thanks.

    I purchased a clear plastic 3 tier drawer setup, it's like regular clothes dresser, cut it in half and that's the size. I put all my wires and such in their, and I have it stored in my closet, no one knows it is even there but me. I like to keep my place clean.

    In that case why not just throw a different one away?

    I use briefs. Nice and snug. I tried boxers but just couldn't make it work.

    I have the same problem man. I'm a musician and an audio/videophile, I have cords coming out of everywhere. But I can never find that one I need. I can't find a generic one to charge my MP3 player right now. I have about 20 of them.
